The Gender-Equality Paradox Is Part of a Bigger Phenomenon: Reply to Richardson and Colleagues (2020)

About (English version): 

In this Reply to Richardson and colleagues (2020), we elaborate on their question, “Is there a gender-equality paradox in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM)?” We agree that there are different ways to express the proportion of women who choose STEM degrees. In our view, it is important to control for dif-ferences in the overall number of women and men who attend college, which varies from nation to nation. Accordingly, in our original article (Stoet & Geary, 2018), we chose a calculation method that adjusts for this potential confound.
